McGuigan have launched a brand new de-alcoholised wine range named Delight. The Delight range consists of two wines; the Delight Rose and the Delight Moscato.
The Delight Rosé is “lightly spritzed” with flavours of “forest fruits, rose petals and a lingering ripe red cherry finish”.
The Delight Moscato is described as a “sweet wine with citrus and perfume notes and a gentle spritz”.
Both wines have an ABV of 0.4%, having been de-alcoholised at the producer’s winery in Australia, with alcohol removed after a wine has been fermented and matured.
Methods of de-alcoholising include vacuum distillation, when a wine is warmed in a vacuum to evaporate alcohol at temperatures below 30 degrees celsius, or by reverse osmosis, when a wine’s phenolic components are filtered, and the alcohol removed through distillation
At McGuigan they are committed to producing high quality wines for all consumers, and that extends to those with an appetite for low-alcohol varieties,” said chief winemaker, Neil McGuigan. “We’re delighted to be introducing our first low-alcohol range into Ireland and believe that the Delight wines will fill a gap in the Irish market for those consumers seeking premium versions of this increasingly popular style of wine.”
